Tonight (November 9) on Syfy at 9 PM ET: Stargate Universe episode 2.07 “The Greater Good”, written by Carl Binder and directed by William Waring.

“Always consider the greater good. That’s it,” Dr. Nicholas Rush advised Lt. Tamara Johansen when she was given command of Destiny for the first time.

These may sound like wise words, but considering the source, one does have to question his sincerity considering that he’s hiding the discovery of the ship’s master code, its bridge, and how to control when the Destiny enters and exits FTL. There are still several systems to discover and gain control of, evident by the number of empty seats on the bridge, but Rush is of the mind-set that “Ultimately, I control this ship.” He wants to continue to sit on the bridge alone and in command. But Destiny itself has shown that it has its own agenda. After the revelation that the ship can play the “what if” game within Young’s mind to test his command capability, what’s to say that the ship isn’t manipulating Rush similarly?

Actor Robert Carlyle loves talking about this episode and the one that follows, especially since they delve into where Rush stands in Season Two. He’s on the verge of discovering Destiny‘s mission, and he’s made this discovery his and Chloe’s highest priority.

“I can’t tell you what the mission is,” Carlyle teased in an interview with The Flick Cast, “but I can tell you there is a mission and it’s massive. The clue is in the title of the ship: Destiny. The ship is named that for a reason and perhaps all of these people are there for a reason. It starts to really become an adventure.”
